Finca Allende Tempranillo Blend Rioja 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): Ruby-red. Sexy cherry and roasted meat aromas are complicated by dried orange peel and licorice. Bitter cherry and anise flavors develop a smoky quality with air and are framed by silky tannins. Gains sweetness on the long, spicy finish, which echoes the exotic orange quality. This is extremely suave. (Sep/Oct 2007)

Very mineral and funky nose. Extremely earthy and a bit of tanginess on the finish.

The 2005 Allende is 100% Tempranillo barrel-fermented and aged for 14 months in mostly new French oak. Purple-colored, it offers up an enticing bouquet of pain grille, crushed stone, spice box, scorched earth and blackberry. Ripe, layered, and complex, it has gobs of spicy fruit, several years of aging potential, and a lengthy finish. Ruby-red. Sexy cherry and roasted meat aromas are complicated by dried orange peel and licorice. Bitter cherry and anise flavors develop a smoky quality with air and are framed by silky tannins. Gains sweetness on the long, spicy finish, which echoes the exotic orange quality. This is extremely suave. Cherry, orange peel and leaf notes show traditional character in this light, firm red, which is fresh and clean. Drink now through 2012. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 3,000 cases imported. -TM ** Only 16 in Stock **

Luscious aromas and notes of black currants, blackberries and vanilla. Full-bodied, rich, and with a powerful and lengthy finish.
